Not a newb

Postby Deinonychus » Mon May 10, 2010 4:37 pm

Just made so many posts that the number wrapped around. :wink:

I first read EG 22 years ago, and immediately followed with Speaker for the Dead and Xenocide. Have read all the Ender novels but only one short story: A War of Gifts Have reread the original 3 at least two other times, also.

Read a lot of his other novels and heard him read "The Elephants of Poznan" in person.

I envy folks encountering the series for the first time cuz i found it mind blowing.

What's that? Where are my posts?, you ask? Well, um...

You couldn't have read Xenocide immediately after EG if it was 22 years ago, since Xeno was written in 1991. :)

Substitute "sequentially" for "immediately" and it will... possibly be untrue still.

I may have slipped in Seventh Son and Red Prophet in there. Didn't get to the other Alvin Maker ones till quite recently when i started the series from scratch. Caught The Folk of the Fringe somewhere in there.
